Chocolatine, Malibu, CA
Take a trip to Paris without a security check. Chocolatine is located in Thousand Oaks and although it is wedged in between a scuba shop and a hot dog place, you feel like you are in Provence once you enter the door of this French eatery. This is a cozy, quaint little café owned by a Parisian husband and wife duo. They serve cafe quiche, soups and sandwiches in addition to chocolate, but the star of the show is the glass case filled with handmade chocolates and baked goods. Everything in this café is homemade from the chocolates to the French macaroons. The hot chocolate is out of this world and they have superb chocolate croissants and wonderful lavender and rose infused hand-made chocolates. Enjoy a latte and a cozy conversation to end your day because Chocolatine is tres magnifique.
